A lot of major missions to explore space will happen in the future. There will be both missions with and without people on them.
NASA, the American space agency, will send people back to the Moon using a spacecraft called Orion. Another spacecraft, called Alitair will be launched as well. This will let the crew of the Orion spacecraft land on the Moon. The American programme is called Constellation.
Russia and China are also planning to land people on the Moon.
